Roma director: Roma considered Giroud as potential Dzeko replacement
Olivier Giroud was top of Roma's list of transfer targets if Chelsea were to sign Edin Dzeko.
"We would have signed another important player, perhaps Giroud, because otherwise the fans would have been really unhappy," Monchi told Sky Italia.
"The English club [Chelsea] never met our financial demands so the deal was never closed.
"No club are happy to sell their best players, but if a good offer arrives, it's important to evaluate it."
